Pablo Fornals offered high words of praise for West Ham fans and the London Stadium, when speaking exclusively to the club’s official website today.
The 23-year-old joined the Hammers from Villarreal for around £24 million last month, according to BBC Sport.
And West Ham fans have high expectations for the Spaniard.
The mercurial midfielder possesses exceptional technique, and has the ability to turn a game in an instance with a little bit of magic.
Fornals will surely be a huge hit at the London Stadium. He is exactly the type of player who Hammers fans love. And if he plays to his full potential, the West Ham faithful will have a lot to cheer about next season.
The Spain under-21 international spoke to WHUFC.com, and shared his excitement ahead of playing in front of West Ham’s notoriously vociferous support:
“I knew about the fans, about the stadium, which is a beautiful stadium. The fans fill a stadium that can fit a lot of people every weekend. They fill the stadium, a stadium where there are 60,000 thousand people. They fill it every weekend, which is something admirable. Especially with the passion with which football is lived here in England.”
West Ham will be hoping to make a real push for the top six this season. And if Fornals adjusts to the Premier League quickly, they will have every chance fo doing just that.
The Spaniard is a real talent. And Hammers fans might just have a new cult hero to worship.
